Mexico City is the capital of Mexico and can only be described as a bustling metropolis, offering everything a mega-city could offer - and more! Boasting a colonial feel in its historic center, it provides rich cultural experiences, some world-class sights and a vivid nightlife.

The historic center comprises of churches, museums, and huge colonial buildings, the "Zócalo" being the center of it all. This huge square is the heart of the city, flanked by the Metropolitan Cathedral and the historic complex of the Aztec temple "Templo Mayor" as well as its associated museum. Visit the beautiful arts center palace "Palacio de Bellas Artes" and enjoy the fine arts exhibitions or an opera or orchestral performance.

Mexico City consists of many distinctive districts, with each one having their own feel and highlights. One of the most beautiful is Coyoacán, featuring the charm of a small town with its tree lined cobblestoned streets and colorful colonial houses. Make sure to visit the beautiful "Casa Azul", the Blue House, where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, two of the most famous people of Mexican art history, used to live. If you are looking for entertainment, visit the neighborhood of Zona Rosa, with its many shops, galleries, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Due to its vastness, it is best to take the hop-on hop-off Turibus to be able to get to all the different areas and see all of the city's sights. To best experience its dimensions, explore the "Torre Latinoamericana", a tall tower offering amazing views of the city from its observation deck on the 44th floor! While the inner district is a pretty safe place, be careful with your belongings when walking around in Mexico City and only take registered cabs.

Visit the swimming gardens of the Aztecs in Xochimilco, gliding along its canals on a colorfully decorated boat listening to Mariachi music! Or take a trip to the impressive Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Teotihuacán, climb their majestic tops and soak in the feeling of ancient culture from thousands of years ago.

This city is a busy metropolis offering lots of Mexican feeling and culture as well as entertainment to its visitors - come and explore its treasures!
